    Celiac.com 08/16/2019 - People with celiac disease tend to have quite a few extra food allergies, intolerances, and sensitivities, in addition to being gluten-free. Some very common allergies are soy, dairy, wheat, shellfish, tree nuts, peanuts, fish, and eggs. While others are less commonly known like corn, coffee, tomatoes, apples, citrus (orange, lemon, lime), chocolate, and even candida.

    Now, if you don’t know that much about candida, or even know how to help this particular intestinal problem, you will need to avoid eating yeast, sugar, vinegar (excluding apple cider vinegar), alcohol, dried fruits, peanuts, pistachios, mushrooms, processed foods, smoked foods, and aged cheeses like Parmesan. Plus, avoid using antibiotics, birth control pills, and steroids because long term use will only feed the fungus.

    You will generally find that people with celiac disease have weakened immune systems and typically leaky gut syndrome. This often leaves room for candida to grow, so you don’t want to fuel the fire by eating any of the foods listed in the above paragraph, because if you do you, it will only lead to a list of symptoms that runs a mile long. Some of them include: 

    • adrenal fatigue
    • headaches
    • brain fog
    • depression
    • hair loss
    • chemical sensitivity
    • muscle pain and spasms
    • G.I. distress
    • heartburn
    • heart palpitations
    • dry eyes
    • rashes and itching
    • night sweats
    • sinusitis

    Now, there are ways to feel healthier and take control of the overgrowth with probiotics mixtures and certain supplements. They include oregano, coconut, garlic, ginger, cloves, and more. Even cooking with these herbs on a daily basis will help. Plus, eating a low carb diet filled with a lot of proteins and vegetables will definitely be key!

    So, as you can see, both of these gastrointestinal health conditions are very much linked, and they have a lot more in common than just starting with the same letter.

    You were killing me softly with your words in the article above. About 90% of it is me! Celiacs, candida, acid reflux, lactose intolerant, depression, dry eyes, brain fog, endometrios, etc. I have learned to be very careful with my diet and I take two oil of oregano pills daily. Thank goodness there is cauliflower pizza crust in the world! One of my only indulgences.

    Celiac.com 07/12/2004 – In a study designed to determine the causes of continued gastrointestinal problems in celiacs who are on a gluten-free diet, Italian researchers looked at 15 celiac patients who continued to experience symptoms even after 6-8 months on a gluten-free diet. Histology improved in all patients after this time so refractory celiac disease was excluded as the cause. The scientists performed AGA and EMA tests, stool examination, EGD with histological examination of small bowel mucosa, and sorbitol-, lactose-, and lactulose H2-breath tests to determine a possible cause of the patients p...

Most physicians scoff when the large bowel is mentioned as an infected site. However, the Merk Manual, commonly found and held in esteem in any doctors office says that Candida is "Usually transmitted sexually, the infection can also spread from the intestine. The increased incidence is partially due to indiscriminate use of broad-spectrum antibiotics and a large number of women taking contraceptive pills." It also includes corticosteroids (Cortisone...

    Celiac.com 07/03/2009 - A new study provides demonstrates that small intestinal bacterial overgrowth and increased intestinal permeability are both associated with non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD).
    Previous studies have suggested that bacteria from the intestine might play a role in NAFLD, which is the hepatic component of the Metabolic Syndrome. NAFLD can worsen to nonalcoholic steatohepatitis, and some experts have wondered if this progression might be promoted by liver exposure to gut bacteria.
    A team of researchers, led by Antonio Grieco of Rome, set out to answer this question by investigating gut permeability in patients with NAFLD...
